How do you wish to transform?


I just love this picture! I happen to love those "feet-in" pictures where everyone puts there feet in the shot. It shows who was there and where you were. And it kinda symbolizes standing together. Now, this may just look like any other "feet-in" picture, but I like to think it's a little different. For me it presents a passage of time. You see, this was taken on the very same spot that the hubs and I got married 12 years earlier! 12 YEARS! I was just so happy that we could go back and stand in the same place and kiss in the same spot. And it was even more special because Leila was with us this time. I wish there was a way to bend time and space and Leila could have been at our wedding.

This week the wish for WW is all about transformation. The question, "What do you wish to transform?" I am noticing that my answers for these questions have been popping into my head almost instantaneously these past few weeks....hopefully that means I'm observing and paying attention to myself! I wish to transform my body! It has been 8 years since my daughter was born and I have been steadily adding weight as those years have rolled by. I never pictured myself like this. In my head I picture myself as the fit active girl I used to be, but then I look in the mirror or try on some clothes and Reality hits.

I have all of the confidence that an approaching New Year can bring. I want to finally shed the extra pounds that I've been carrying with me. I need to do whatever inner work I need to do resolve this issue. I want to feel healthy and fit again. I know what it feels like...I can remember and I know that muscles have memory too! I wish to be able to wear my cute clothes that I still have hanging in my closet. I remember that girl inside with her quirky sense of fashion. I remember being able to wear anything and it would look good. I think delving into these memories will help keep me on point for my goal.

I know that reaching my goal will have a ripple effect in all areas of my life...my relationships, my career, my confidence, my ability to manifest and stay open to my dreams coming true. (Maybe I'll even chart my progress here to start off the new year. Any wishers want to join in for support?)

to be clear:
I wish to transform my body into a healthy and fit physical representation of the positive inner ME!

  15. Shari, thanks for stopping by my Blog, love when you visit. You said I won?? won?? I'll try to figure out where and what - I'm excited but don't remember...hmmmmm. LOL

  16. OMGOSH.....my brain clicked Kind Over Matter! Thanks for the kind words and I feel the same for all my fly girls - love you all so much - you truly get me through the week! Your Blog is so great but today your comment on my Blog was meant to pull me here at this moment. I can totally relate to the outside no longer reflecting what's on the inside. I had steadily gained weight after my mom passed and last year that all finally took a really bad toll on my health - all in one year! BAM. Diabetic, kidney function down, failed stress test, angiogram and heart stent put in. Did I do a 360 and start reversing the damage or taking care of me? No. It's been one year and time for the next stress test and this week I've been having some serious conversations with me....is it too late, can I reverse and get back any of this? or take control, manage your life, each breath is a gift, BEGIN. I needed to read this today and thank you for reinforcing what I've been feeling - today is the first day, right?

  17. Dear Linda, if you are still breathing it is not too late. Don't waste another minute thinking about that. Get through your test, see what they say and then go from there. I'm going to be writing more about this journey as the new year begins. I hope you will check back and add your thoughts, your triumphs and challenges along the way. WE can transform ourselves through daily choices. You are more than enough and Catina Jane's print will be the perfect reminder. I think the whole Universe is conspiring to get you (and myself) inspired.

    And thank you so much for posting this, because I had gotten a crummy comment today and your post just erased all of that nastiness from my heart! See, these simple little connections are needed to make it all work...so let's get our bodies healthy so we can fulfill are true purpose....inspiration...and Love! Lovebeams to ya, Linda...Everything is going to be just fine.

  18. As Shari wishes for herself I wish for you also...

    Health and fitness are very worthy goals... and you will also be teaching your daughter how to care for herself.

    xoxo Valerie

  19. Shari, I feel this post to my bones - thank you so much and I agree that these connections are such a gift. You got a bad comment? I've heard only a couple of times that someone got a bad one - I don't get it? You mean someone leaves a mean and nasty comment on the blog? don't give it a minute's attention - you are part of changing my life. Thank you, hug.

  20. Thank you Linda. I'm not going to hold onto anything negative that someone says about my blog. That's not what this space is for. I hope you'll keep me posted as to your transformation in the new year and I'll do the same with you!
